ACEs in the Criminal Justice System

Discussion and sharing of resources in working with clients involved in the criminal justice system and how screening for and treating ACEs will lead to successful re-entry of prisoners into the community and reduced recidivism for former offenders.

First job fair in a jail connects inmates and employers (workforce.org)

 

On Wednesday, March 1, 2017, the first job fair in a San Diego County jail was held for participants of East Mesa Reentry Facility’s (EMRF) culinary training program and Reentry Works San Diego job center. Fifty-six inmates who are within a year of release attended the job fair, holding portfolios containing their résumés and pointers from the San Diego Second Chance Program, the operator of the job center that organized the job fair along with the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department

Forty of the attendees are participants of the job center. Participating employers included Starbucks, Kitchens for Good, Mirch Masala 2 GO, City Tacos, La Bella Pizza Garden, Royalty Staffing and Roma Market

The meaningful conversations at the job fair offered great practice for interviewing skills.
